Impressive indeed, rallied from 11 down w/4 minutes to go to send it to OT! I could hardly believe that a big school like UNC would actually go play in Charleston, probably won't do that again anytime soon!

I'll start. I won't talk about my favorite team. I don't want to jinx them so far. As far as the field. I think North Carolina might be a bit overrated. Who have they beat to be tingling around the top ten all season long. Kansas as number 1. Im not sold. Purdue looked dominant today. I Think If Kansas is one, I'd put Purdue as second. As far as 3 four and five. I think you can make a case for Kentucky, Syracuse, or Texas. With that beating by Purdue, WV will drop and who should take their place. I think a healthy Villanova team should slip back into the top five. That won't happen, but that's my pick.

Anyone else...It can be anything college basketball related. I think I said that already.


I'll also add: Im kinda ticked that West Virginia didn't represent the Big East like they should have. Nothing against Purdue. I guess we just learned how good the Boilermakers are. Or how overrated WV?
I am a North Carolina fan and I agree with you 100%, they are way overrated! In my honest opinion, they shouldn't even be ranked! They are too young, inconsistent, bad defensively and soft at the PG. I'd put them in the top 40 but not any higher.

P.S. Great win by the College of Charleston! They deserved to win that game!

Lots of teams starting conference play today. Texas Tech is at Oklahoma State (always tough there) and Kansas State plays at Missouri, among others.

New Mexico Lobos are ranked #14 this year, they just lost earlier this week so they will fall in the polls, but they were picked to finish 5th in the MWC and are making a name for themselves, they only have 1 senior and 2 juniors so they will be contenders the next few years.

Par for the course, I guess. 23 points is better than 50, though it's still a loss.

Default College Basketball Fans?

Thoughts in the Top 10? Texas a good number 1? Kentucky?

As a Kentucky Fan, I think they are a bit over rated......

Seems that freshman sensation from KY never has a bad night.

Yup, Texas and KY are as good as rated. ( IMHO )
